Daily Holidays - December 1

Eat a Red Apple Day The stores are still bursting with apples, fresh from the harvest.

A few of the varieties you will see year round, because they either store well or are brought in from other parts of the world throughout the year. Other varieties, though, won't store long even in commercial storage, so time is running out to have one of them this season.

In case you're tempted to bend the rules a bit and have several Red Apples -- say, in an apple pie -- the idea of the day is probably to eat a fresh apple out of hand, because fresh-eating apples tend to store less well than cooking apples.

Make it a point today to treat yourself to a Red Apple that you don't see year round, or to introduce yourself to a new one that you haven't met before. http://www.cooksinfo.com/eat-a-red-apple-day

5. We just filed taxes for the past two years.

Those refunds will come in handy this winter.

I still have one new storage unit rent to pay on. This will be the 1st month so I need to check the due date.

8. In my case it's

real estate & personal property taxes. Why they have to have them due on 12/31 just after Christmas is beyond me. They could pick any date of the year for this........

15. Did you bake extra pies?

I'm surprised you have any left to enjoy today.

I really want more freestone peach pie. I'll settle for strawberry rhubarb or blackberry if they're out of peach.

16. No.. sorry! LOL

I used to bake seven pies when we had more family around. This year just two... one apple and one pumpkin. We still have about half of the pumpkin. That peach pie sounds heavenly!
